No Profound Thoughts

            I haven’t written in this blog because I haven’t had any profound thoughts in over a week.  Now that’s a horrible thing for a teaching pastor.  Imagine that!  The preacher has nothing to say!  But I realize today that not everything a preacher says needs to be exceptionally profound.  A lot of what a preacher says should be reminders of the same old truths.  One of my life verses is Matthew 13:52, which reminds me of this matter.  Jesus said, “Every teacher of the law who has been instructed about the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.”  New treasures as well as old.  Sometimes we need to give up the idea of profound or novel or new and just remind people, and ourselves, of the fundamental doctrines of God and grace.  Of course, even our profound thoughts must be tied to the fundamental doctrines.  Too many preachers look for only the novel.
